Just wondering if anyone has these tyres fitted?

Good, bad ugly etc.

Getting some fitted tomorrow anyway, just curious.

Cheers

Great off road and road tyre in dry conditions, not so great in muddy conditions.

They are the Bridgestone muddies. It a pretty uncommon tyre - can't say I've heard any comments about them before - good or bad.
Might want to check that those above had the D674 muddies and not the very common D694.

Thanks Phil, I was thinking along those lines. Haven't heard anything about them myself, but I will be able to find out first hand after today.

Cheers

or indeed the 697's.

For what its worth, here's a comment I posted on the Aussie 4WD BT50 page this morning, in response to a Q about what tyres to use:

At approx $280 the Bridgestone LT 697's are very hard to beat as genuine all-rounder. Ran mine at 17 to 19 to 22 psi with 3.2 t load - full GVM- last year on the Sandy Blight Junction road, Gunbarrel Highway & Canning Stock route + the blacktop there & back. No probs. No issues on bitumen or in rain. On my 3rd set now (previous ones were the predecessors, the LT 694's & LT 693's). Ran them on Patrols also, & me mate has 'em on his 79 series dual cab.

I appreciate other brands & models are OK also, just relating some real world variations of driving environments. Still had useable tread at over 50,000 km !

I have used a tyre pressure monitoring system but they eventually succumb to the vibrations. I find it hard to stump up with $ 100 to replace each as it fails.

P.S. lack of punctures/stakes/sidewall damage/buggered tyres just means ya ain't driven far enough :)

Cheers

Hi TTTSA,

I have a GU Patrol fitted with Bridgestone Dueller A/T LT265/70R16 8PR 117/114S 694 Mud and Snow and have done around 112,000km on them with possibly another 10,000km left before replacement. Japanese manufactured and a great all round tyre.

Cheers Rob
